Laura Ingraham To LeBron James 'Shut Up And Dribble'

Journalist Laura Ingraham sought to rebuke the Cleveland Cavaliers’ LeBron James for “talking politics” during a recent interview — (According to this)

Ingraham said she was not interested in the political advice from “someone who gets paid $100 million a year to bounce a ball.”

“The No. 1 job in America, the appointed person is someone who doesn’t understand the people,” the athlete said at one point during the interview, adding that some of the president’s comments are “laughable and scary.”

Ingraham responded to his comments Thursday, calling them “barely intelligible” and “ungrammatical” on her Fox News program The Ingraham Angle

“It’s always unwise to seek political advice from someone who gets paid $100 million a year to bounce a ball,” she said. “Keep the political comments to yourselves. … Shut up and dribble.”



Ingraham’s comments came in the run-up to Sunday’s NBA All-Star game, in which James captained the winning team. He said Ingraham’s criticism only enlarged his message: “The best thing she did was help me create more awareness” during the “best weekend” at the NBA, the athlete said Sunday. “I get to sit up here and talk about social injustice.”

“We will definitely not shut up and dribble. … I mean too much to society, too much to the youth, too much to so many kids who feel like they don’t have a way out,” James continued.

“I had no idea who she is … until now,” the athlete quipped. “So she won in that case.”
